Nelson Rigg CL-1040-TP Jumbo Tail Bag 4.8 5 6 6
GREAT Bag I really like this tail bag. Its big enough to carry a weekends worth of gear or additional gear for a longer trip with the side bags I have. And it fits a full face helmet when expanded. October 20, 2014
6500 highway miles with no issues or wear Chicago to Seattle and Seattle to Phoenix were the bulk of the miles. Works perfect on the rear seat pad of my FJR. Dry with the cover in the rain. Hard rain for 2 days and speed and not a drop. Excellent product and easy to use. With this bag and my paniers I could travel indefinitely with everything I need. I actually have room for more if I want it. Also works as a backrest for me on the FJR. September 2, 2014
good tailbag for the money! tail bag is a nice addition to the saddlebags I purchased earlier.....when I unzip the expansion zipper I can fit my helmet inside....and there are ALOT of pockets and storage space, hopefully I will be able to go on some trips and pack them to see actual space for storage.....should be good for what trips I will be taking April 14, 2014
Nice size....... bought this bag for longer trips on my FJR. Not a huge fan of hard top cases so I tried this one. Size is deceiving, when expanded it holds a ton of stuff. Connection to the bike is simple, quick and easy with the mounting straps. Rain cover works well, rode in the rain for 3 hours and my computer and clothes were dry as a bone. Quality and finish is top notch, for the money it's well worth it! Highly recommended. March 17, 2014
Great bag, perfect for my need This bag fit my needs perfectly. Very well constructed and proved itself on a two week trip through all types of weather! October 14, 2013
Great bag at a good price Basically a great bag. Good quality materials/construction and functional design, TONS of space compared to most other bags but still maintains a pretty aerodynamic low profile and it looks streamlined once its on. Keeps its shape when empty, which I like, and the straps are awesome, waaay better than bungee cords. My biggest complaint is that it has a soft bottom, which wouldn't be a big deal normally, but with a tail bag this size unless you have a very wide, flat tail section the sides of the bag (which extend a good few inches over the sides of my Monster 796) will pull over and down around the sides of your seat when you cinch it down, even when full, making it impossible to get a snug fit...unless you have it full of square plates the exact size and shape of the bag. You want a tight fit so it doesn't move around back there and to get it right I had to fabricate a little mounting deck out of an old lunch tray and that did the trick, but it was kind of a time consuming hassle. Not exactly plug and play, in my case at least. This could be solved easily by including an aluminum or plastic hard bottom plate sewn into the bag, but I suppose that would add significant cost, too. Anyway, now that I've got it dialed I have no complaints. Great bag. July 10, 2013

Patrick L: I borrowed this tail bag from a friend for a four day ride. It worked so well that I ordered one for myself.
The attachments are better on this updated model than the original ones. Easy on and off with soft ties
to the bike and clips to the rings on the bag.

A shopper asked: Is there quick connect buckles on this bag so I can get on and off w/o removing my seat? May 23, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Scott P: I'm not sure I understand the question... but there is no quick and easy way to remove the bag really. It straps to some point on the frame of the bike, but I found the straps that come with it difficult to use (and not easy to quickly remove). I replaced them with some bungee cords and using that, I can install or remove the bag in about 10 seconds. Other than the straps, I really love the bag! It holds a ton, has the flaps on the sides to protect the paint on the bike from scratches from the straps, and has held up well so far. May 23, 2014

Eric F: I went to home depot and got box of Velcro reusable ties. Used 4 of them and just did a loop around the rear passenger hold rails and wala ------ easy on and easy off and fully secure! Velcro for the WIN! May 23, 2014

Marti G: The bag has quick connects at the bag, they are the plastic ends you see on the straps, the straps on the other hand have loops on them so they do not come off too easily. May 23, 2014

A shopper asked: How will this bag fit on a BMW 1200RT? Better on the bag seat or rack? Any advice from anyone who is using this on an RT is appreciated? Mike Oct 13, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Wilbur N: I have an RT and I mount it on the passenger seat close enough to the rear of the driver's seat that it can be used as a makeshift back rest. I loop the rear strap under the luggage rack and connect to each side of the rear of the bag, The front two straps loop around the frame just to the rear of the passenger foot pegs. It's quick to attach and detach. I have to take the hard bags off to attach the straps. Great bag and it holds a lot of stuff when expanded. You could attach in
the same manner on the luggage rack also. Bill

A shopper asked: is there anyway I can fit this on top of my tour pack safely? Aug 28, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Chris T: Hard to say without seeing your set up. I had to build a mounting platform out of an old lunch tray to get it to fit my bike properly, but once it was on it performed beautifully. Just got back from a 4,000 mile ride and it went flawlessly. My view is that it's always possible, you just have to find a way to do it right/safely. One word of caution though, this is a very large bag, which I love about it, but stacked on top of a hard shell tour pack it's going to be sticking up like a totem pole on the back of your bike...good luck.

Eric F: I found a simple way of just using basic Velcro straps (Home Depot/Lowes has multiple types) on the rings and secured that way. There are so many places to secure the bag on this bag. Hope that helps! Nov 4, 2013
